McCall 789 is finished!!!

Oh, I am so happy! I just finished the 'House of the Seven Gables' 1940 embroidery pattern (McCall 789).  Not a moment too soon as I need to mail this out by Monday to make sure it gets to my family by Christmas for the gift exchange.

Here it is....I just love all the colors:

Here's the pattern cover:

And some close-ups:

I love the trees:


And the front door of the house:

And here is what it will look like framed (we still have to mount it properly)...

YAY! It's so pretty! I love it and I can't believe I finished it in time!!

  9. This came out lovely! I've just finished some tea towels that I hope to post pictures of soon. Embroidery is much more fun for me then counted cross stitch these days : )
